Debian

Posted 03-15-2011 at 03:53 PM by drask

Okay, my Ubuntu install has been getting raggedy over time. I've upgraded it a couple of times and that's always iffy, plus our network engineers have been busily tying our shares to both our user and computer active directory entries, which worked for a while under Ubuntu using Likewise-open, but then stopped and I haven't had time to figure out why. So baby with the bathwater style, I decided it was time to jump ship and try Debian. I've always heard good things about that distro even before Ubuntu...

Autostart coldfusion on boot in Ubuntu

Posted 04-22-2010 at 12:10 PM by drask

My current job requires that I work with Coldfusion 9. I have it set up to run on an Ubuntu 9.10 desktop with apache2. Everything installs pretty well (there is one dependency of libstdc++5 that is no longer supported by Ubuntu and must be downloaded from another repository like http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/pool....6-18_i386.deb as detailed in http://www.howtoforge.com/installing...on-ubuntu-9.04) but the option to have Coldfusion startup when...

Fix the arrow keys in the Ubuntu Perl debugger

Posted 02-01-2010 at 12:14 PM by drask

This is just a quick note to myself. I spend a lot of time in the perl debugger (perl -d -e 1) and CPAN (perl -MCPAN -e shell) in Ubuntu and hate the way that when I get to the perl shell my keyboard cursor keys stop doing useful things like scrolling through my history and start producing garbage like "^[[A", "^[[B" "^[[C" and "^[[D" (up arrow, down arrow, right arrow and left arrow respectively).

I have fixed this several times on other boxes,...

Netgear WG311 PCI Wireless Network Adapter on Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic Koala

Posted 01-01-2010 at 01:08 PM by drask
Updated 01-01-2010 at 01:09 PM by drask

I recently purchased a recertified Netgear WG311 PCI Wireless Network Adapter from TigerDirect.com http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...?Sku=N100-1487because my LinkSys USB adapter has become quite cranky lately, and requires several hours of cool-down time between uses (and apparently leaving it in the USB port when the computer is off allows enough power to trickle through it to prevent it from cooling down, so you have to unplug it when shutting off the computer...

#howmany for grub 2

Posted 12-05-2009 at 08:46 PM by drask
Updated 12-05-2009 at 10:39 PM by drask

I don't really like the default behavior of Grub in Ubuntu to continue to add all the kernel updates to my grub boot menu. I never go back and use old kernels (except by mistake) and it just crowds up my boot menu.

In the past, I have used the #howmany option in /boot/grub/menu.lst to limit this to only the most recent kernel. Now that I am using Karmic Koala though, this option no longer appears to be available due to the fact that the default bootloader is now Grub 2.
